Geordi has eyes, for cry out loud. Disease--pick one--is all gone. It's not just a fountain-of-youth. We'll have our lifespans doubled. And all we have to do is kill, or move, these 600 people. And Picard continues to hold the Federation ideals. I don't care where it falls in the universe or the nitpickers of continuity. It is a good story.
I wish I could agree... but if it only takes a few days for Geordi to grow eyes, why can't spas and resorts be set up for the sick elsewhere on the planet?
